New Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games have been announced

Microsoft said that the new update is expected to roll out later today, bringing a bunch of new features to its consoles.

An update for Xbox One will be released today which allows users to upload custom Gamerpics, co-stream using Mixer and plenty of other features. Up until now, the ability to add custom gamerpics was restricted to Xbox Insider testers and users of the Xbox (beta) app on Windows 10. Such pics will be subject to the Xbox Live Code of Conduct to prevent inappropriate imagery from popping up.

Sign-in to your Xbox One with just one press of the Xbox button on your controller. Select Create Tournament and choose the game.

Speaking of streaming, it's now easier to discover live broadcasts from Club members.

"With new user-generated tournaments for Killer Instinct on Xbox One, it's never been easier to compete with friends. Or, see all users now streaming from the tournament by going to the "Watch" tab in the tournament page".

Households with multiple controllers can now link a specific Xbox One controllers to their profile. On both platforms, you will notice that Looking-for-Group requests are now front and center, since you can share them to the activity feed and messages.

"With this update, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can now browse the titles in their subscription through the Xbox app".

While Xbox One X release isn't until a few months later, Microsoft is apparently already working on a new Xbox console design. Lastly, on Android, there is the bonus Chat Bubbles feature, which lets you use mobile games and apps while still keeping your Xbox messages close.

The Android/iOS Xbox apps are no longer tied to a region, and can be selected manually just like on the Xbox One via the settings menu.
